If you've been following me you know that my daughter's nick-name is Miss Piggy. While I am in my, I think I want to sew something stage, I decided I was going to make my daughter a Tulle Skirt. I saw a inspiration picture and the girl had on a Miss Piggy shirt with a Tu-Tu. I am making a maxi tulle skirt and I thought a denim vest would look really cute and decided to incorporate a sequin picture of Miss Piggy on the back of the vest. Now this takes me way back because I used to make hand-painted t-shirts and I used sequins all the time. So I rolled up my sleeves and it was on and popping. I almost ended up painting the picture because I could not find any pink sequins but I did and all I got to say is Ta-Daaaaa! This was a fternoon project, once you get to gluing you get into a rhythm and it goes by fast. Here was the process.
I used an old pair of jean to cut out the canvas for my applique.
I was going to paint this Andy Warhol inspired picture of Miss Piggy. I went to a local craft store looking for sequins and I could not pink the individual packs with pink. So I started this and decides to wait until the next day and check another craft store for pink sequins.
I found the pink sequins so this is the picture I am using.
Traced with a sharpie
